Vitamin Cby Vitamin C
Looking like a cross between a scene-queen from London's swingin' '60s and C-3PO, New York dance-pop diva-to-be Vitamin C seems a little chilly peering at us from the cover of her self-titled debut. But the sun-drenched alterna-teen dreams on the former Eve's Plum singer's coming-out party bubble forth with a vivacity that makes Britney Spears sound like Rammstein with a chest cold. Leading with the dancehall-tinged up-with-people pop of "Smile," VITAMIN C runs through a market-tested mix of dance-pop, hip-hop, and alt-rock hybrids that could score with Backstreet Boys and Breeders fans alike. Referencing alt-pop history, Ms. C offers a '90s revision of "I Got You" by New Zealand new wavers Split Enz, while "About Last Night" (co-written with Robbie Neville) samples the Clash's "Magnificent Seven." But the best tune here is "Me, Myself and I," which dips into the sound and spirit of Smash Mouth's "Walkin' on the Sun" for a tasty nugget of effortless ear candy.

the song graduation makes me cry and i love the song so much!!! vitamin c is a great singer!
i love graduation to the max! every time i listened to it during the summer, i cried because i was going to move from NYC to canada!!! i still have tears every time i hear even a bit of it. this song is timeless. it's going to be played at her great-grandkids graduations!!!!
I think Vitamin C has a very positive attitude. I think her not-so-meaningless songs might inspire some teenagers in their basically humdrum life filled with boyfriends, shopping, and a lot of stuff. So, with this odd review, buy the cd!
i love her whole cd it is so good exspecially smile and graduation . vitamin c is the best singer.
I love the song graduation. It makes me cry. The lines that get me are, 1. As we go on, we remember, all the times we, spent together., and 2. We've been friends since,1st grade.
I graduated in the spring of 2000. A Few months before graduation, I heard the song Graduation (Friends Forever) on the radio. It is such a sweet song, I cried the first time I heard it. For those of you who know the song but not the title, the chorus goes like this, ''As we go on, we remember all the times we had together. As our lives change from whatever, we will still be friends forever.'' And that's true too. Good luck and God bless to Blacksburg High School's graduating class of 2000. You can find your old friends at classmates.com To all my good friends from BHS, especially Adam Breske, Abby Carter, Moriel Vandsburger, Lindsay McCartney, and all the others. I love you all so much and thank you so much for being a part of my life. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The song called Graduation. it made everyone in my class cry. because we were looking back at the memories that we had.
It's the best CD in the world and my favorite EVER, the sound is great!
I liked, the last song it reminds me of my, friends they played it at our 8th grade dance doesn't make me cry it reminds people about friends all, the times they've spent since well, K-8th well it's worth buying even though I didn't buy it, Smile is a good song too.

VITAMIN C IS SUCH A COOL SINGER. THE OTHER DAY I SAW HER PERFORM ON TV AND SHE SINGS SO GOOD. I THINK ALL HER SONGS ARE AWESOME. I LIKE SMILE, GRADUATION, AND ME, MYSELF, AND I. THESE ARE THE COOLEST SONGS AND THEY ARE ALL SANG BY A VERY TALENTED SINGER, VITAMIN C. I THINK SHE'S THE BEST SINGER AND I HOPE SHE HAS A NEW CD SOON
Vitamin C is a great artist. I liked this album because it has great rhyme and it is so KEWL.
I love the song Graduation"friends forever". It made everybody at my 6th grade graduation cry because we finally realized we were going to middle school, and wouldn't see each other. The song is so good.
Vitamin C's cd is so cool. I could listen to it for hours. My favorite songs are ''Me, Myself, and I'' and ''Graduation''. Sorry if that is spelled wrong. I'm a bad speller. Well, anyways write back. Thanks!
Vitamin C's 2000 smash hit, titled Graduation (Friends Forever) is THE BEST SONG OF THE YEAR! This song will be played in EVERY high school Graduation! Thanks Vitamin C for singing and writing the best song of the year!
Vitamin C is so talented and unique, and her CD shows those qualities off. This is the perfect CD for all you people who yearn for a different sound from your typical teen pop girly girls. I especially love 'Me, Myself, and I'. It's a really catchy dance tune and it really gets me moving! 'Smile' is always great on a sad day. All in all, this CD is DA BOMB! If you only buy one CD in your life, this has to be it!
This is such a cool CD! If you can get your hands on it, listen. She describes life as a teenager going through life's journeys.
This CD Rocks! The songs make you want to stop what you're doing and dance. They'll definately cheer u up. My favorite song was Smile.
I love this album! I love Graduation (Friends Forever). Me and my friends love that song! It makes us cry ! I just love that album
vitamin c is the best! whoever does'nt like her is crazy!
